Codemasters has confirmed development of Clive Barker’s Jericho, a next generation and PC supernatural horror concept and story devised by Barker.
Barker said, “It’s incredible when a company as admired as Codemasters embraces your vision the way they have embraced Jericho. This project is very close to my heart and I don’t believe there’s ever been anything like it. It promises to be the most spectacular, creative, and unflinching realization of a Clive Barker nightmare that will drag players in kicking and screaming.”
Clive Barker’s Jericho deals with the mysterious reappearance of a lost city in a remote desert. A Special Forces squad, trained in both conventional warfare and the arcane arts, is sent in.
“Players will constantly be given new challenges, new environments, and yes, new horrors and abominations to face every step of the way,” continued Barker. “However, unlike a conventional game in which the characters are attempting to escape at the end of their ride through Hell, our protagonists have a much more difficult task. The closer they come to the end of their trek into darkness, the nearer they get to the source of that darkness: Evil Incarnate, we’ll call it for now…”
